Video grab of kindergarten student jumping off school building.
A kindergarten student had a miraculous save after he jumped off from the third storey of his school building. His fall was broken by the security guard who stood on the ground below him and caught him with his bare hands before the landing.
Although the guard saved the kid’s life, the impact from hitting the floor was enough to cause the child some minor fractures. The footage of the child jumping and being caught has gone viral on the internet. The incident took place in the village of Xinhe in China.
According to the Fei County Education Bureau as quoted by local media reports, the child, who remains to be unidentified, had somehow locked himself inside a bathroom. In order to make an escape, he opened up the bathroom window and leaped over the railing. The clip was released by a Chinese media outlet called the Good Morning Shandong. In the video, people can be heard shouting and asking the kid to not jump. It also shows another kid behind the boy before he takes the leap.
A statement from the authority also claimed the child had opened the window of the bathroom and climbed over the railing. Even though the teachers dissuaded him from jumping, the boy resorted to the extreme measure. The child was then taken to the hospital where it was found that he suffered from minor fractures on his forehead.
Earlier, in September, a 14-year-old boy had jumped (https://www.news18.com/news/india/chinese-student-jumps-to-death-after-slapped-by-mother-in-school-2891241.html) from a school building in the Chinese city of Wuhan after his mother had slapped him at school. Media had reported that the principal of the school had called the grade nine student’s parents to reprimand him for some offense. After the meeting, CCTV footage had revealed that the boy’s mother had slapped him twice in the hallway.
After his mother left, the boy reportedly made his way up to the fifth floor and jumped to his death.
